  2. I find all these memorials, while fitting tributes, to be terribly sad. A testimony to the inability of the human race to come to grips with the fact we are all one family.

  9. The Lieutenant was a Gurkha, I see. When I think of Gurkhas, think of super courageous fighting men.

  11. Oh wow. I just noticed the date. November 11 is Veterans Day here in the States. Was the Kargil War still ongoing when he was killed, or was this an insurgent action? Seems like Kargil was over before then, but perhaps not.

    I guess in Kashmir, the war is never really "over" is it. How sad that a place can be at once so beautiful and so deadly.

    Aram se Lieutenant. Aur jai hind!

  13. I got creeps seeing all these monument-pictures today.
    Reading all comments about heroes.

    I agree with what you've said in your comments, completly.
    It's time to give for the world to give peace a chance.

    Take care and stay safe!
